Visual artist and tutor, Jacki Archibald, is hosting Encaustic-Wax Foundation weekend workshops monthly throughout 2016 at her 'ARTnWAX' Studio in Brisbane.
The first event will be held on the 27th and 28th of February from 10am to 4pm daily with the $200 fee to include all waxes, tools and equipment required for 2 days. As places are limited, early bookings are advised with the next weekend workshop on the 19th and 20th March 2016.
At this workshop Jacki will share her passion with Encaustic-Wax, so you are sure to find out that Encaustic-wax is unlike any other medium and is suitable for all abilities. Students will discover how this ancient and versatile medium offers many creative directions for artists from simple 'craft' type projects to endless uses with more 'fine art' works, as it can have a detailed representational or quite abstract look.
The word encaustic comes from Greece and means to burn in which refers to the process of fusing the wax paint onto a rigid surface. It makes artwork very durable, seals & dries immediately. Encaustic-wax is usually a mixture of molten beeswax, damar resin with pigments or oil paint.
Informative resource notes will also be provided so students can also learn how to set their own home studio on a budget and make their own medium and paints.
Basic painting techniques will be demonstrated including layering, drawing, printing, writing, stencils, inlay, incising, scraping, collage, image transfer, shellac burn & mixed media will be shown. Students can expect to gain confidence handling this medium safely while producing many examples of their own individual work in this weekend workshop.
